Since 2019 Horizons has been an annual commemorative event that pays tribute to the 112 British survivors of the Holocaust who shared their testimony with the UKHMF in 2015. In 2018 Echo Eternal was launched to keep the words of those survivors alive forever through artistic response, Horizons became the event through which these responses would be celebrated and shared, bringing participants together in dynamic commemoration.
Horizons 2021 gained new significance, unable to come together physically, the event evolved to unite us in remembrance through new means and to reach further into our communities with a call to action. Horizons 2021 inspired participants to find ways to give eternal life to the testimonies that have been our guiding light, sparking new impulses of light and forming a collective force for good.
The 2021 event was the culmination of 19 days, dedicated to 19 holocaust survivors who all came to live in the UK. Young people, schools and community leaders came together through commitment and action to inspire people to be the light in the darkness.
Horizons 2021 was broadcast on January 26th . The collective endeavour, involving young participants from across the country, was a celebration of the project’s capacity to bring different communities together within the context of a single, shared respect for survivor testimony.
With a cast of over 100 people, on location in 3 cities, Horizons 2021, created in response to survivor testimony, invited audiences to witness the transformational passage from darkness to light.
